Ruminations of the Easily Amused for 9/9/2016

Missed this when it happened in Waco. 

A McLennan County jury agreed Friday to slash the tax appraisal of the Sandy Creek coal-fired power plant by more than half, a significant loss for the McLennan County Appraisal District and some local taxing entities.

A jury in the courtroom of 170th District Judge Jim Meyer decided the plant was worth only $408 million in 2014 and $431 million in 2015, close to what Sandy Creek Power Associates sought.

Wow, 5300 Wells Fargo employees created ghost accounts... were just fired.

On Thursday, federal regulators said Wells Fargo employees secretly created millions of unauthorized bank and credit card accounts -- without their customers knowing it -- since 2011. The phony accounts earned the bank unwarranted fees and allowed Wells Fargo employees to boost their sales figures and make more money. Wells Fargo confirmed to CNNMoney that it had fired 5,300 employees related to the shady behavior over the last few years. Employees went so far as to create phony PIN numbers and fake email addresses to enroll customers in online banking services, the CFPB said. The scope of the scandal is shocking. An analysis conducted by a consulting firm hired by Wells Fargo concluded that bank employees opened up over 1.5 million deposit accounts that may not have been authorized, according to the CFPB. Wells Fargo is being slapped with the largest penalty since the CFPB was founded in 2011. The bank agreed to pay $185 million in fines, along with $5 million to refund customers. The report says that "employees moved funds from customers' existing accounts into newly-created accounts without theier knowledge or consent," which resulted in "customers being charged for insufficient funds or overdraft fees," since their original accounts didn't contain the money. What's more is that "Wells Fargo employees also submitted applications for 565,443 credit card accounts without their knowledge or consent," causing customers who had unauthorized credit cards opened in their names to be "hit by annual fees, interest charges and other fees."

No. Garland's nomination CANNOT be blamed on President Obama. Shame on the Republicans especially and shame on any Democrats who aren't pushing it still. 

Although I don't care about 9/11 anymore, this mattress ad is pretty tasteless

Thank you! I just see your signature with your smiling face in front of a Dinosaurus. Oh Gosh! It would be great to talk with Mr. Addington. I've been reading quite a bit these days. I am still writing the story I am on the deadline. I am trying to break the practice of writting stories in a hurry. Don't think! Don't think! Just write! Just write! My coordinator, Pepe Carreno, is backing me Gosh! Thanks for the message.
